Care to the Caregiver

Hospice volunteers play a vital role in providing relief care to patients in their own homes when caregivers require a break to recharge, run errands, or attend to personal or family matters. 

Narrative Care

The Narrative Care program, volunteers assist patients and caregivers compile a book of memories and stories from the life of the patient. The book of memories may portray the entire lifetime of the client or some aspect of his or her life that they wish to recognize and share in book form. The process of compiling this memory book can help both the client and the family members look back on all that they have shared to find the significance and value of a life journey. This process helps shift the focus from fear of an uncertain future to the comfort of fond past memories and often opens lines of communication within the family.
